Team Blake Mini Forever Avon
clanger68
Hi Everyone.

As of 9.00am on Sunday 26th a series of posts were made on Team Blake's facebook page, as some of you don't have access to that I will do my best to post them here, apologies if they do not work!

Here goes................

A very good morning to you.

As you all know we were due to be together today in Steventon at ‘Forever Avon’, celebrating along with fellow fans, friends and cast & crew members of our beloved show Blake’s 7, to remember and celebrate the wonderful, and much missed, Paul Darrow.

The worldwide terrible events that have transpired recently have unfortunately stopped this from happening, …for this year at least, but Team Blake are very much looking forward to 2021 where we can get on with the party we had planned.
In the interests of everyone’s safety and well being the difficult decision to reschedule the event was taken in May of this year and a new date of Sunday July 18th 2021 was settled upon.

Team Blake were very grateful to everyone who showed so much support for this decision, and we have been very humbled by the fact that, to date, not one refund request has been made for the sold out event and that you lovely fans are willing to wait patiently for the new date.

This kind of support really means so much to us, as it did to our guests when we relayed this fact to them.
So much so that we, and they, thought we should mark the day ‘that was to have been’ in some way.

So starting now, and on the hour, technical issues dependent, please enjoy the following messages, videos and very special quiz, brought to you by a very special person.

Team Blake would like to extend our enormous gratitude to all the participants who have contributed, many at short notice, to the proceedings, and to all of you who have supported our events over the years.

Thank you and Long Live Blake’s 7

A second attempt to post a video showcasing some of the events where that Team Blake have displayed original costumes from Blake's 7. Predominantly the costumes belong to, and are curated by Gary, who along with his friends and fellow collectors, try to bring these wonderful creations out for fellow fans to see up close as often as possible. We hope you enjoy the chance to view them here again. We hope you are enjoying today so far, there is more to come.....

A message from Space Commander Travis, and look where he is, he finally got the ship he was after! Thank you Stephen, your continued support to both us and all the fans of the show is without measure, and without you 'Team Blake' would be greatly diminished. As always we appreciate all that you do.

Team Blake were made aware that Paul would like his chosen charity to be The Dogs Trust.

So honouring that request the chosen charity was to be, and now will be, for the event in 2021, ‘The Dog’s Trust’.
The website with more details can be found here:

https://www.dogst...

The proceeds from Forever Avon event on Sunday 18th July 2021 will be going to them, but if you have enjoyed today's ‘online’ offerings so far, and hopefully enjoy the rest of the days fare, and you feel so inclined we are sure Paul would have very much appreciated you donating what you can to this most worthwhile charity.

https://www.dogst.../donation/

We appreciate times are very hard at the moment, and we will all be working together to raise money for them in the summer next year, but today we wanted to highlight the charity.

Today Dogs Trust (formerly the NCDL) is the UK’s largest dog welfare charity and cares for over 15,000 dogs each year through a network of 20 rehoming centres in the UK. We have been involved in every piece of legislation affecting dogs over the past 126 years.

Paul’s love of dogs was evident, hopefully we can all do him proud by helping the four legged friends he adored so fondly.

Visual Effects Designer Mat Irvine has a lovely message for you all, and we think Mat could have easily had an alternative career on the stage had he wished. A fun and very uplifting video, thank you so much Mat, a shining star as always. We hope you catch up with that rebellious ORAC very soon and see you both next year!

How did you get on? Here is the answer from the man himself. You still have time to post your answer in the comments on the 'Question' video thread posted earlier today, you have until midnight. Thank you again to Paul who was very kind in giving up some of his precious time to do this for us a couple of years ago. We hope you enjoyed seeing it as much as we did. A big cheer in Paul's memory is in order.

'Well Now', here we are at the end of the day, we hope you have enjoyed this small slice of virtual Blake's 7, a shame that we could not all get together in person today at 'Forever Avon' to remember and celebrate Paul Darrow, but we hope today has got you in the mood and has helped to bridge the gap until we can all meet in Steventon in 2021.

The attached video hopefully is a reminder of the fun that has been had in the past and of yet more to be had in the future. Once again we would like to thank all our lovely guests for their support and time given, we really are lucky in fandom to have such wonderful people who are prepared to interact with us all so readily.

Thank you to all the Volunteers who work tirelessly behind the scenes, before, during and after the events the shows couldn't happen without them, and to all the lovely exhibitors who bring us such wonders to behold.

Our final thanks go to all of you who have supported our events in the past, and in particular this one, your understanding and patience have been humbling, heartwarming and very much appreciated.

Take care and be safe in these uncertain times, hoping for better times ahead, see you soon.

- ALL AT TEAM BLAKE.

I just realised I missed one or two - great resource, Andy, in putting them all together. Thanks very much and thanks to all the guests as well.

Looking forward to the real thing next year and wondering what will replace the Graphite Writing Sticks and Sand Of Virn in Krantor's Lucky Dip!

Oh Andy and Team Blake. I’m crying a bit as I rewatch all these but they are lovely and you are such a wonderful and generous group. Thank you.
Just because I can't sing doesn't mean I won't.

Dear Andy and Team Blake, thank you so much for these lovely and great videos!
Thank you for giving your time and effort to please us.
(I am a bit late, have been too busy to visit the forum lately, so I need to catch up with a lot of threads)
And of course a thank you to all actors and creators who agreed to send us their messages.
It all moves me.
